Storyline

He has a new chance at a new life, but is it worth the cost? Ryan is not unlike millions of people - fresh out of college, a dead-end job, and an endless search for meaning in his life. Offered a new start via a self-help group, simply known as The Center, and their highly charismatic leader Vincent, Ryan soon finds himself enmeshed in a world that seemingly offers him hope. But, there is a dark side to everything, and The Center has many secrets. Charlie Griak's debut feature paints a fascinating and tense portrait of desperation and those that prey upon it. Written by Michael Rabehl,Director of Programming Cinequest Film Festival

Truly tedious
20 October 2017 | by joyousspringSee all my reviews

I'm pretty sure the other reviewers of this film are friends of the director. This film is exceptionally tedious. The actors lack energy and charisma and the writing is clunky. If you're interested in cults check out The Invitation or Hulu's The Path or even I Am Not Your Guru (really creepy!).
